Let's go back to the 80's

not a toy but this was one of my first cameras. lol do you remember disc cameras?
Never received one of these but wanted one badly. I still have my other strawberry shortcake dolls. I might have been a little old but i did not care. I loved that she gave strawberry kisses.
fuzzy stickers!! i have these in my collectioni had fun many times at my grandparents playing with this.
Scratch and sniff--my teacher knew not to put it on my paper. I would keep them and add it to my book later. did your teacher ever give out these?
I wanted one of these so bad. I remember marking it in the christmas wish book
these stickers were the coolest! i have several of these in my collection. I actually have that moon.
did not have one of these but i do remember them. the hello kitty could be put in the bath tub with you and would change colors.
one of my fave things ever. i wish i still had this!
yes, please!! I still wish i had this too. i think it would be cool for my boys to use.
i had the hand held one but I loved it.

I found a pretty cool site about 80's movies . You should check it out. I looked up one of my many faves and it gives all kinds of cool facts.

  2. Oh great post! I remember all of these I had to have a sticker book I love all those stickers! I am excited about being happy mail partners :D


  3. Thanks for the shout out! Holla!
    I love the 80s~ totally awesome post!!!
    Love the stinky stickers...and I love you!

  4. I remember so much of this stuff!!!! haha! So great!!! I had that fashion plates set. It was one of my favorite things. I have a book that I made my Grandma with her "new wardrobe". haha! I still have that book here in my craft room! =)
    Great memories!!! xo

  5. I Looove the 80s! 80s music, films, 80s everything! I am glad I am not the only one. Great post! xo

  6. ahhh fashion plates!! I totally had some of those when I was little. It's weird b/c I have been thinking lately (and I don't know why) about if I have a kid and I happen to make the comment, "So and so is a fashion plate," that kid won't understand the reference. How do you explain that toy to future generations? "Well, you put some paper down on a piece of plastic and rub on top of it with a colored pencil..." That's not going to sound very cool. Do kids these days even know what colored pencils are?

  7. I remember all this stuff! Yes, I had a disc camera! - too funny! LOL!

  8. Oh my gosh, loved that game "Simon." And I made many a birthday card in my youth with the help of the spirograph!
